    When will this be online, please? I'd really like to see the film but couldn't make it to Manchester.

    Thank you Adam, I loved the show! I especially enjoyed the surreal setting for the film screening, in which we the audience were turned into the ghostly mannequins we had seen in previous rooms. My favourite section was the carnival ghosttown that turned into the Black Panther rooms, a vivid expression of the flipside of the American Dream for Black people. Sad truth is the disrepair and poverty of such rooms are quite typical of African homes in the present day; it was like walking through my cousin's house in the village in Nigeria, with the same battered worn flickering TVs.

    Went to see Felt like a kiss tonight. Oh my god- what an experience! It should come with a health warning! It was fantastic but a little too scary for me, I thought the acting was great and the props were amazing.

    I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing experience - it felt like a kiss was really intriguing and thought provoking. I went last Sunday and have been thinking and talking about it all week. It would be great to extend the run and then more people could have the chance to see it.

    I went to It Felt Like a Kiss last night. I have never seen anything quite like it. What an experience. I hope it stays on abit longer so some of the people i know can visit. Is the Full documentary going to be online...Also in the documentary there was this one music clip that i loved...i have been trying to work out what it was all day it was like a long toned electronic tone that started a track...anyway...that noise was infectious.

    Hi

    I am a massive fan from Manchester and am seeing it felt like a kiss next week, can't wait :) As other people have been asking, where can I buy your documentaries on DVD, especially the rarer ones? I know you can buy the Century of Self on the American Amazon but its apparently very bad quality.
    Are you working on any new films?
    One last question- I was meant to see you debate with Germaine Greer at the last international festival but couldn't make it, will you be giving any other talks/ debates in the future?

    Thanks and keep making fantastic documentries

    P.S. A film on 'Oh Dearism' and the media would be great

    Here's my experience of the show at BBC News: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/arts_and_culture/8134509.stm

    Contains no spoilers beyond what's mentioned in the official programme blurb.

    Adam - I really hope youre right but I still feel that Lawson gave too much away. He would never have done that to a novel, film, TV programme. Going on the 14th. Still really looking forward to it.

    @emile_henry
    Thanks for your advices.
    I obviously forgot to add: "...as some people already did with the previous works of Mr. Curtis - "The Trap", "The Power of Nightmares", "The Century of the Self", "The Mayfair Set" and "The Living Dead", all of them in integrum." I hope you now find your advices redundant a little bit? (Please, do imagine here a smiling emoticon, I don't like to insert them.)

    I only wanted to make some possibly useful suggestions on the subject that Mr. Curtis himself mentioned at least once, 2005:

    "The problem is that the films are full of archive film and music from a multitude of sources. The reason my series are normally not released on DVD is that it is prohibitively costly and a nightmare - no pun intended - to clear the rights. " (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/4171213.stm)

    Therefore, I've just asked in advance what is the main issue in the subject of rights' clearance, in order to not wasting anyone's time and space if my suggestions about the subject are useful as an extra head hole. My shame, but I discovered these words of Mr. Curtis after posting my previous comment here, so I apologize.
